A Run for Money (Kac para kac)
Description: This morality tale from director Reha Erdem adds to the turn-of-the-century renaissance in Turkish film, most recently evidenced in the 1999 efforts The Third Page and Journey to the Sun. A Run for Money concerns the quandary faced by an Istanbul clothier when he discovers half a million dollars languishing in a paper bag in the back of a cab. After a minor attempt to find its owner, Selim (Taner Birsel) absconds with the cash and hides it in his home, keeping his family in the dark about his newfound riches. As news of the missing cash spreads throughout the city, Selim becomes more and more insular, alienating those around him. When his business is robbed, he blames his assistant; as his paranoia mounts, he lavishes riches on his suspicious wife. A Run for Money was shown at the 2000 Munich Film Festival.~ Michael Hastings, All Movie Guide
